生物医学工程导论 --Introduction to Biomedical Engineering

授课教师:

阮刚      教授


课程具体教学目标:

1)获得对生物医学工程学科的入门性知识

2)发展基于对生物医学工程学科的实际理解产生的兴趣

3)发展用英文进行交流的基本能力

知识模块顺序及对应的学时

1)课程引言(Introduction),3学时

2)生命系统(Living Systems),6学时

3)生物材料(Biomaterials),9学时

4)生物力学(Biomechanics),3学时

5)生物传递与药物释放(Biotransport and Drug Delivery),6学时

6)生物医学影像(Biomedical Imaging),6学时

7)生物纳米技术(Bionanotechnology),6学时

8)癌症(Cancer),6学时

9)技术转化(Toward the Real World),6学时

本课程对生物医学工程这个新兴学科作入门性的介绍。课程教学的基本理念是将课程作为一个平台,一方面启蒙引导学生在专业学科知识技能(包括概况和前沿)方面的发展,另一方面启蒙开发学生应用英语作为交流工具的能力。本课程采用该课程国际上的一本经典教材:Introduction to Biomedical Engineering, John Enderle, Joseph Bronzino, Academic Press, 2nd  edition。在此基础上,课程负责人自行组织材料来弥补生物医学学科最近的一些主要发展。另外,邀请合适的客座讲师(例如成功创业者、知识产权律师、工业研发负责人等)做讲座。


Synopsis:
